NR ill send ya the full set in full res later.
Like after ive slept for a few days and caught up with the mountain or work heh.

The most fun bit for me of the day was round 1 - SuperPI vs Coolaler (aka God).
It was just jaw dropping he was moving 0.5s each run of 4m (~1m 2s final time)
very much agreed! it was a really tense and tough fight.. seems like whatever we did couldnt even get near to him.

and to think of it, if it wasnt for him, we'd be walking home with 20/20 points! haha!

Re: VR Zone OC Competition - Singapore

wow seeing Day 2 leader board, T_M you really slaughtered second place Team Taiwan 18pts to 8pts

Yeah Coolaler had much more time to practise on DDR3 platform IIRC

on day 1 and 2 what clocks did you manage out of the cpus E6600 and Q6700 compared to the other teams ?

I read Shamino had issues getting into windows ?

Re: VR Zone OC Competition - Singapore

Woot, a truly Team Aus then

Day 1 - ES 6600 i got 4200MHz 4m on chilled water (1.7V and 60C load i think - not enough time to **** around finding out)
Day 2 - ES QX6700 (locked) we got 4550MHz 4m on DICE (1.73V real - 1.8V set and -45C idle i think), this is where we really killed the other teams. Only other person with such CPU clocks i think was Coolaler, and his GPU died during 3D01 (2nd of 4 comp tests) i think.

Pretty much every team with a chance of winning (CPU and GPU pots) had hardware problems causing them to either fold or not start at all except China i think.

If you saw the way we ran tests and the clocks/volts we used, you would know we were just trying to remain consistent and not kill anything (or even fail any tests). So im sure there was much more to get out of all the hardware. Take for instance the GPU. We ran it at lower than possible volts because every now and then we'd get corrupt screens so we backed it off. On the very last run of 3D'06 i said ****it we've already won, lets thrash it so i bumped the volts up some and 20MHz on the GPU - the run passed and we increased our score even more

Re: VR Zone OC Competition - Singapore

Yeah it takes skill and knowledge to know when to back off on clocks as you did T_M

They must have a huge grave yard of dead or messed up hardware by the end of the competition!

Re: VR Zone OC Competition - Singapore

Well, Day 1 i killed 1 CPU for unknown reasons.
Took me a good 30 mins to work out WTF was going on. And in a 3hr race at the half way mark thats bad mkaaaay.
So different approach Day 2 paid off. Sensible cooling setup, take time to get everything sealed up and nice. No stupid mods and really just clock bumping with no risky tweaks.

Checkout my awesome CPU insulation effort - 6+ hrs of constant DICE!
